Johnny Foreigner are easily one of the best brightest and most exciting bands on the UK indie scene, having exploded onto the it in 2007. The band in the past 5 years put out 3 records, toured the UK world relentlessly, and have long since established themselves as one of the best live bands on the UK circuit winning an ever loyal fan base in the time. Playing a special one off intimate show for Freshers at Avondale this is something you are really not going to want to miss out on!
Band with a catchy name who don't like writing biographies about themselves but enjoy playing loud rock music and the occasional drink.
Having spent our formative years listening to bands like Braid, Hundred Reasons, The Dismemberment Plan, The Faint and Tears for Fears, when Scholars write songs they tend to leave traces of influences all over the place, but hope what they end up with just sounds like…Scholars.
Scholars are Sam, ruggedly good looking, talents ranging from singing to yelling to playing keyboards (and all things in between). They are Chris, a bass playing, deep-voiced and serious man who can also speak fluent French. They are Tom, broad-shouldered and prone to penning novelty Christmas hits. They are Cal, focused, deadly, never afraid to bring the rock. They are Mike, who hits things with sticks.
Fiercely perfectionist, possessed of a dogged work ethic and determined to avoid the mediocre, for Scholars nothing is more important than the songs
At the very forefront of the Isle of Wights music scene, and tipped by none other than Radio 1's Rob Da Bank as the ones to watch at this years Bestival, Goodbye Stereo have got it right first time. With infectious lyrics; hooks in all the right places; and vocally driven songs, you can expect big things from this indie/pop quintet, as they certainly know how to conjure up the hits.
It’s been a successful few years since the bands formation in late 2008. To date the band have seen themselves win countless unsigned competitions including XFM weekly winner, receive endless amounts of radio play including various BBC Introducing sessions, have their music featured in British indie flick 'Big Font, Large Spacing', and have had the opportunity to support an array of other talented artists including; Tubelord, The Attika State, Go-Audio, Furthest Drive Home, Canterbury, Out of Sight, Data Select Party, The Operators, Venice Ahoy, Paige, and most notably Air Traffic and Plan B.
Fuelled with excessive amounts of enthusiasm, charisma and charm, twinned with an energetic performance guaranteed to put a smile on the most morose of faces; Goodbye Stereo will be a permanent fixture in your head for days. Definitely a band to look out for in 2012.
Southampton based post-hardcore/indie/punk trio who try to make noises, shout, sing and clap their hands in time.
"That was just bizarre"
"Like a shit Art Brut"
"Like a talentless Pavement"
"I enjoyed the songs Keith wrote, yours were rubbish"
"Not as awful as I expected"
"I like that thing you did"
"They are only playing this show because they have very compromising photos of me"
Fresh faced math rockers, who we have a feeling are going to be ruddy amazing.
